Government should be committed to population control

Today, what stands between India and high prosperity index is the huge population, which still continues to increase at alarming level.

To control the population growth, Prime Minister Modi should immediately take following steps with highest level of urgency.

The first step is to impose ban on polygamy and enact law to punish the violators severely. Those indulging in polygamy should be prevented from contesting in elections at any level. Today, we see several politicians and businessmen and others having more than one wife and not even concealing it.

The second step should be to limit the number of children to maximum of two per family and parents with more than two children should face disincentive by being made ineligible for getting jobs in the government and public sector undertakings and ineligible for selective welfare schemes of the government at the state and central level.

The third step should be to provide incentive for family with one child by introducing some imaginative schemes.
A vigorous nation wide campaign must be launched similar to Swachh Bharat campaign to make the people realize the intensity and seriousness of the population problem, so that people would be persuaded to voluntarily limit the family size.

A separate minister at cabinet rank to exclusively implement the population control programme should be appointed by the central and all state governments and the minister should be lady with administrative and communication ability and should not be mere politician.

Yearly target should be set to achieve population de growth rate for the next ten years, with mechanism and computer model to assess the population de growth rate at every six month interval.

The above schemes should come into force with effect from 1st October, 2020 and whatever the rules and laws required must be enacted, if necessary by an ordinance.

Sorry for the mistake. The name Mr Venkataraman should replace Mr Bhargava more  
While implementing the policy through administrative processes, the Govt. should give the grace period of 9 months from the date of implementation for obvious reasons...... the suggestions are very well laid down by Mr Bhargava and others... more  
By and large well to do families are already observing two children norm. Mostly people with little education, low earning, socially backward or religious fanatics have three or more children. Therefore, while forming any policy on population control these factors have to be taken into consideration and incentives and disincentives announced accordingly. For many people children are their source of income and child labor laws or income tax etc do not fear them. One child policy would not pay any dividend to the nation in the long run. With such policy getting good candidates for the armed forces or government jobs would be a deterrent.
I also fully agree with Mr Satya Pal Ratti regarding "Swatch Bharat Mission". It has not been a success as yet because of apathy of Govt. Babus. This is clear when some one visit a Govt. office having public dealings. An example Sub-Registrar office building in Noida. more  
Suggestions about such schemes and incentives/de-incentives are welcome and laudable, indeed. In practice, however, these remain in files in closed cupboards.

Equally important appears to be the necessity of breaking certain myths in thinking of families, that the bride must produce an offspring within the first year of marriage! If not, thoughts begin to run astray.......and generally about her only.

The maximum onus of contributing towards population control lies on us human beings. We have also gotten used to the habit of hiding our own weaknesses behind governmental initiatives.

Why must the PM be dragged into every initiative? Look at the scant success that has so far been achieved with the "Swatchch Bharat Mission" which the PM initiated six years ago. People have not responded. more
